Husky Burnette
Husky Burnette
The Blues are a religion and Brian "Husky" Burnette sho nuff preaches it. You can feel the testimony as he blends Delta and Hill Country Blues with Rock n Roll. His music is gritty, soulful, low-down and dirty.

Hailing from Tennessee, Brian Burnette, better known as Husky, has followed in his family's footsteps, writing, recording and touring for a living. Over the years Burnette has toured with such greats as Roger Alan Wade, Hank Williams III, The GD Gallows and more. He's also shared the stage with many others such as Leon Russell, T-Model Ford, Kenny Brown, Guy Clark, Emmylou Harris, Shooter Jennings, Scott H. Biram and J.J. Grey & Mofro.

Husky signed with the Rusty Knuckles record label in 2013 and released his second LP Tales From East End Blvd. the same year. The album featured guest appearances from Shooter Jennings and JB Beverley as well as Grammy nominees Billy Don Burns and Aaron Rodgers, among others. Upon release in August, Tales From East End Blvd. spent 23 weeks as a featured album on iTunes as well as New Releases Now and many more. A single of the classic hymn Amazing Grace followed in 2014 and in late 2015 the Tales From East End Blvd Deluxe Edition was released. In February 2016 we saw his follow-up LP for the Rusty Knuckles label, Ain't Nothin' But A Revival!, that featured Andy Gibson (Hank Williams III), Col JD Wilkes (Legendary Shack Shakers) and more. Husky and his band toured the album for the majority of 2016 while also finding time to finish a collaborative album, Shake, Rattle & Roll, with Sweet GA Brown and Tomcat Hughes, released in December.

Some of Husky’s main influences include Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters, Leon Russell, Lee Michaels, R.L. Burnside, Chuck Berry, Buddy Guy, ZZ Top, Rolling Stones, Black Crowes and Bill Withers.

Dead Man String Band
Strait from 6 feet under comes Dead Man String Band! A one man rock sideshow from Cincinnati, OH. This isn't the one man acts of the past you've seen before, instead it is a full on rock show with an arsenal of amps, drums, and a style that's truly unique to the Dead Man giving it the fan made genre of Appalachian/Delta Punk. Since it's creation Dead Man String Band has been wowing and captivating audiences with not only an amazing sonic display but a visual show made to grab the listeners eyes, as well as their ears. With a stage setup that has been referred to as "Looking at a science experiment" Dead Man String Band has created a sound all his own that will surely grab your attention.

Taking DIY to a whole new level is a phrase commonly used to describe DMSB's sound, presentation, theatrics, and energy. From being brought out on stage in a coffin, to simply slumping towards the stage stiffly, throwing the audience off, until the first notes hit and by that time their stuck to their spot on the floor. Brining crowd members on stage and making them play his drums is just another thing that makes this act unique. Crowd participation isn't just encouraged, it's almost forced to an almost comic like degree. The presentation is another captivating aspect. Dawning a mask fabricated from the same folks that brought you GWAR's props, when he walks on stage you know you're in for a crazy night. Finally the music styling isn't something most are accustomed to seeing. The hands are playing in the stylings of Doc Watson but the amps are in the tone of Slayer and then add the fact that he's playing a drum set at his feet. Don't let the low number of members fool you. This is a band as much as any other.

March 21st, 2015 marked the release of Dead Man's debut album "I" which was widely accepted with much anticipation. And that's where we're finding ourselves today. With a new album out and a promising horizon, the Dead Man String Band plans on becoming a force to be reckoned with!
